Going back to the Moon is the only way right now to get to Mars, a direct route is not politically, technically or financially possible. Once back on the Moon we'll have the heavy lift necessary to go to Mars, the basic infrastructure and most of the other technologies.


Let's go to Mars and far beyond -  triple NASA's budget !   #space channel !!    - videos !!!

Mars Express scientists find a different Mars underneath

MARSIS found evidence that these buried impact craters – from about 130 to 470 kilometres in diameter – are present under much of the northern lowlands. The findings appear in the 14 December issue of the journal Nature.

The radar system on ESA’s Mars Express has uncovered new details about some of the most mysterious deposits on Mars: The Medusae Fossae Formation. It has given the first direct measurement of the depth and electrical properties of these materials, providing new clues about their origin.

Re: Mars Express (MEX) - ESA orbiter

Wow dates to about the time of the crash so I am surprise that its still intact...

This week, the European Space Agency released a picture taken by its Mars Express orbiter that showed what it described as “a curious cloud formation” stretching from east to west near Arsia Mons, the southernmost in a string of three volcanoes.

Suspended over the western slope of Arsia Mons, an enormous volcano near the red planet’s equator, the elongated cloud stretches for about 930 miles

What's That Weird Cloud That's Been Looming Over Mars for Weeks?

With its 12-mile-high peak and diameter of nearly 400 miles, Arsia Mons is 30 times more voluminous than the largest volcanoes on Earth. Its humongous bulk condenses and cools air currents as they pass over the summit, creating this “orographic cloud”—a nephologic formation that tend to form over leeward (downwind) slopes—on the western flank of the volcano.

Similar clouds observed in 2009, 2012, and 2015 coincided with the winter season, so it’s not surprising that this one showed up a few weeks before the Martian winter solstice on October 16. Plus, Mars was recently gripped by a dust storm that encircled the planet in June and July that likely boosted the cloud’s visibility and size.

Wow 4th times a charm ....

sounds like the perfect place to land near....

Re: Mars Express (MEX) - ESA orbiter

Arsia Mons is one of several large volcanic structures in the same region, so how come its the only one with a plume?

Re: Mars Express (MEX) - ESA orbiter

I would to something simular on earth like the hawain islands which means the surface crust stopped moving over the plume location direction for the mars techtonic movement.

Re: Mars Express (MEX) - ESA orbiter

You would only need a few fumaroles to be active to produce this plume.

Re: Mars Express (MEX) - ESA orbiter

Mars orbiter spots return of long, thin cloud on Red Planet

mars-express-cloud-formation-evolution-hg.jpg

The long, narrow cloud of water ice was observed on the leeward side of Arsia Mons, a large volcano near Mars' equator. Mars Express captured images of the recurring feature in mid-July and scientists at ESA shared the photos online this week.

"This elongated cloud forms every martian year during this season around the southern solstice, and repeats for 80 days or even more, following a rapid daily cycle," astronomer Jorge Hernandez-Bernal said in an ESA news release.

Sounds like a good water source
